Fishertown Quaker Museum
The idea of creating a Quaker museum in Western Pennsylvania had been discussed by several interested persons. This idea quickly evolved into the concept of preserving this historic meetinghouse under the auspices of Dunnings Creek Friends Meeting as well as opening the building as a museum reflecting the development and history of Quakerism in Bedford County.
The Museum is not yet open to the public except by appointment.
